UniRanks is the ultimate tool to compare universities: UniRanks compiles data from all the most influential rankings and shows the actual visibility of the university on the world stage. All the major rankings focus on different factors, such as academics (THE World University Ranking), reputation (QS World University Ranking), research (US News Best Global Universities), impact (ARWU, also known as Shanghai Ranking), or innovation (Reuters World Top Innovative Universities). By taking into account all these factors, UniRanks provides a broader perspective and indicates more accurately how universities position themselves globally. UniRanks ranking weights equally reputation, academics, research, and research impact, and includes innovation to boost institutions focused on transferring knowledge, as follows:
These five rankings are updated yearly between August and October. UniRanks ranking is therefore only partial during this period, updated with the original constituents. It provides a final overview of a given academic year when the last ranking is updated.
